Webinar Description
This webinar will address how the United States Constitution’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures plays out in the context of a fast-moving modern school environment, where teachers and school administrators must respect the Constitution's requirements, staff and students' health and safety, and maintain the good order and discipline required to make a classroom a safe place to learn. Topics covered will include searches for weapons and dangerous drugs; social media and digital evidence; and the evolving relationship between school officials and law enforcement authorities.
